President Muhammadu Buhari has exposed himself to heavy criticisms, after he refused to show up for the 2019 presidential candidates debate, scheduled to hold today, January 19th.
The president’s refusal to be present has stirred a storm on social media, as Nigerians are currently on vatious platforms, dropping their two pennies on the situation.
However, presidential aide on new media, Bashir Ahmad, has said that the President doesn’t have to debate because his achievements in the last 3 and 1/2 years, speak for him.
Mr Bashir went on to list the President’s records in rails, roads universities, bridges and security – as good enough reason why Buhari doesn’t need to participate in the debate.
He said this, while speaking via Twitter on Saturday, minutes after the scheduled debate was to hold.
For Pres. Buhari, he doesn’t have to debate, his achievements for 3.5 years will do the talk for him. In SW; Lag-Ibadan Rail, Lag-Abeokuta road, in SS & SE; Maritime University and 2nd Niger Bridge, in NE; Security, in NW; ABJ-KD-KN expressways, in NC; Baro Port and many more.
